Located in the middle of the Amazonian rainforest, Selva Madre is one of the most renowned place for an Ayahuasca retreat according to your path of awakening.
Honoring our principles, our brew is made only by Shamans fasting during the cooking process. We use only pure, fresh Ayahuasca vines and Chacruna leaves, nothing more is added.
Drinking the sacred medicine allows you to expand your consciousness, to encounter your real self and to heal your Karma. In other hand, it ensures your body of a perfect health.
Every ceremony is followed by a personal consultation and debriefing with Don Luis, plant baths and natural remedies can be recommended to you following his diagnosis.
We are committed not only to providing the safest and deepest ayahuasca healing and plant-spirit shamanism experience in the Amazon, but of equal importance, ensuring that you are able to sustain, cultivate and integrate your healing experiences back into day-to-day life after your retreat.Taking Ayahuasca is a permanently transforming process on all levels. It reveals your higher inner self and facilitates deep healing.
Healing and detox
Purging is a central key element in Amazonian traditional medicine, the purge is induced by Ayahuasca helping releasing physical, emotional energies and traumas that you can carry since the beginning of your life.
Upon the completion of your stay you will be cleansed of all toxins, energetic charges and you will have a final consultation with Maestro Don Luis.
During your retreat, you are staying in an authentic private Amazonian bungalow, they are very comfortable and spacious, protected by mosquito netting. Each room contains a personal bathroom and shower.
Our primary concern is your safety during your retreat. For this reason we have a doctor and a nurse coming on site for any needs.
Three ceremonies per week
Safety and care are important in order to offer the best experience. Unlike other centers that propose five ceremonies or more per week, there is the perfect amount of three ceremonies per week, this is a normal and ideal frequency. Indeed Ayahuasca demands 48 hours to be entirely processed by the body and for its profound healings to be assimilated. Doing more ceremonies in a short time is not recommended by the tradition and ethics of native healers.
The days after ceremonies you will be invited to meet the Shamans and Maestro Don Luis Rimachi. You have the opportunity to speak about your visions and their significance and the Shamans will explain what they have seen within you during the ceremony. you will receive a direct feedback regarding your progression and healing. Don Luis will also prescribe natural medicines if you need it. All your progression and Shamans remarks are stored on a personal file.
Ayahuasca friendly food
Food is very important in order for you to have the best experience during your retreat, for this reason we serve fresh and natural local food. The meals are healthy and balanced with a dietetic care.
After the ceremonies there will be vegetarian food served and the following elements are omitted: Salt, sugar, saturated fats.
The transport is provided between Selva Madre and Iquitos city center on your first and last day, the transportation during the retreat except tours are not included. We are located at the other side of the river Nanay from Iquitos so the journey takes approximately one hour including taxi and boat.
